What is a Vape Pen? 

There is a lot of misinformation about what a vape pen is and how it works. Some vape pens have a cartridge or tank, atomizer, battery, sensor, and a mouthpiece. When you inhale with  the mouthpiece, the battery will send a charge to the sensor which prompts the temperature in the atomizer to increase. 

This heats up the flavored juice in the cartridge and produces a vapor. The vapor will pass through the vape pen and to your mouth where you inhale it. Cartridges come in a variety of juice options, so you can choose different flavors. Of course, it all starts with turning it on!

Turning on Your Vape

Let’s talk about how to turn on your vape pen. Most vape pens will come with at least a partially charged battery, but you may need to get it to a full charge before starting. This will help you maximize your first vaping session.

First, with your RELX device, you just need to inhale with the mouthpiece and you will see the indicator light glow. This indicates the battery is activated and you can get started using your e-cigarette! 

Troubleshooting Your Vape

Whether it is your first-time vaping or fiftieth, you may encounter some issues that you need to troubleshoot. 

If you have a device that is not responding, try some of these troubleshooting tips. 

  • Keep it Charged: Make sure your e-cigarette battery is fully charged. Have you charged the device recently? It is helpful to get into the habit of plugging it in daily, making sure the cord is fully connected, and ensure the light is on to indicate that it is charging. 
  • Dead Battery: Again, make sure your device is fully charged and then try using it again. 
  • Clean the Device: The magnetic connection points could be mired down with dust or e-liquid. This may also cause issues that can be resolved by a thorough cleaning. Use a cotton swab or dry tissue to swab the connection points and clear out any lingering grime. 

If these troubleshooting tips do not help get the vape device on, consult your user guide or reach out to our team for more help. 


So, there you have it! Once you get your device, plug it in for a quick-charge. After the vape device is charged, just insert your flavor pod, start inhaling and you are on your way! Remember if you have any issues using your device, you can check the user manual or reach out to our customer service teams.
